  1. 1. LIFE WITH BIG BROTHER Next step in H1N1 scare: Microchip implants Company developing under-the-skin devices to detect 'bio-threats' Posted: August 22, 2009 11:50 pm Eastern By Drew Zahn © 2009 WorldNetDaily A Florida-based company that boasts selling the world's first and only federally approved radio microchip for implanting in humans is now turning its development branch toward "emergency preparedness," hoping to produce an implant that can automatically detect in its host's bloodstream the presence of swine flu or other viruses deemed a "bio- threat." VeriChip Corporation currently sells a small, under-the-skin Radio Frequency Identification capsule, or RFID, that patients can opt to have VeriChip's microchip implant, about the size of a grain of rice implanted, containing a number computer-linked to their medical records, enabling doctors with a special reader to access the information even if the patient is unconscious or unidentified. The company boasts its microchip, roughly the size of a grain of rice, is the only such implant approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. But VeriChip has also turned its attention to other uses for the technology, including microchips that be used to tag and log human remains after a disaster and implants the company hopes will be able to warn if their host is infected with the H1N1 swine flu virus, the H5N1 bird flu virus or other pandemic agents deemed to be a "bio-threat." VeriChip is working with a Minnesota company, Receptors LLC, to develop the virus-detection technology. "As we continue to build on our partnership with Receptors, which started with the development of a glucose-sensing RFID implantable microchip, we are moving beyond patient identification to sensors that can detect and identify illnesses and viruses such as influenza," said Scott R. Silverman, chairman of VeriChip, in a statement. "This is an exciting next step for the future of our healthcare division."
  2. 2. Hizballah deploys chemical and biological weapons near Israeli border - Arab, European sources DEBKAfile Special Report September 3, 2009, Hizballah operative training with anti-chemical mask The Kuwaiti daily Al-Siyassa reported Thursday, Sept. 3, that chemical weapons were stored in the hidden Hizballah arms warehouse which blew up at Hirbet Salim near the Israeli border in mid-July. Of the 11 Hizballah operatives killed in the blast, 3 died of chemical poisoning. Hizballah denied any members had been killed or even that it maintains a weapons store in breach of UN resolutions. DEBKAfile disclosed at the time that the Lebanese terrorists had lost five men and more were missing. On July 21, we reported that the explosion heard on both sides of the border refuted Israeli military claims that the Lebanese border was secure and revealed that the destroyed arms dump was one of 35 Hizballah had lined up within 20 kilometers from the border. For this article, click HERE European intelligence sources reported on Sept. 1, that Hizballah had recently boosted its military capabilities with a supply of chemical shells and short-range missiles with chemical warheads and was about to receive biological weapons as well. One source said that the Lebanese terrorist group is now one of the most sophisticated and best trained military forces in the Middle East, describing them as "bad guys with good strategic vision." The source quoted an Arab official as predicting that Hizballah is gearing up "for something big" and there is little doubt that Iran and Syria will be helping them to obtain biological and chemical weapons. "You're going to be reporting a lot on Hizballah in the future," he said. "They already have people on the ground in Europe and elsewhere. They are just waiting for orders to act - they are not in a hurry." Those WMD have already been delivered, according to al Siyassa. DEBKAfile's military sources add that deliveries began some time ago. In the 2006 war in which Israel fought Hizballah, chemical defense systems were discovered in the Lebanese group's bunkers and observation posts. Iran is close to producing its first nuclear bomb - US diplomat DEBKAfile September 9, 2009, 4:53 PM (GMT+02:00) The US chief envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Glyn Davis, said Wednesday, Sept. 9 that ongoing enrichment activity is moving Iran "closer to a dangerous and destabilizing possible breakout capacity." Davis spoke of "serious concerns" in Washington that Iran is now either very near or already has enough low-enriched uranium to produce one nuclear weapon. This could happen if Iran made a decision to further enrich the material to weapons grade. Monday, IAEA chief Mohammed ElBaradei said his watchdog agency was locked in a stalemate with Iran and urged Tehran to "substantively re-engage" with the Vienna-based organization to prove there are no military dimensions to its nuclear program.
  3. 3. Iran beware: Israel tests 'secret weapon' Netanyahu's trip to Russia a diversion? Posted: September 10, 2009, By Jerome R. Corsi © 2009 WorldNetDaily The mystery that surrounded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's unannounced trip to Russia was created by the Israeli government in a calculation to divert attention from a secret weapons test, according to sources. The test, held at undisclosed Israeli military base while Netanyahu was traveling, was done with top- secret authorization from the White House, the sources reported. Trusted confidential Israeli sources in Jerusalem close to the government told WND the Israeli military conducted the secret weapons test in preparation for a planned pre-emptive strike on Iran. Police 'nab' 7-year-old homeschooler Officials took child from plane as it was about to take off Posted: September 09, 2009, By Bob Unruh © 2009 WorldNetDaily A mother and father are going public with details about how Swedish social-services officials had police halt a plane en route to takeoff in order to take custody of their 7- year-old son after they had argued with local school officials about his Annie and Dominic Johannson homeschooling. "I'm no better than other people. I'm just a normal human being, trying my best to do what I feel is important both in my life and in this world. My family is maybe a little different from the norm, but, when did that become a crime," the father, Christer Johannson, has written on the Swedish website Vaken. "Why this article? There are courts to decide what's right in cases like this! Yes ... but when the social services and [their] lawyers started to lie and mix facts I decided to go public! The last thing I heard from the social services was – Dominic is traumatized now, so he needs to be in a calm and peaceful environment. We agree, let him come home then! That is not a suggestion, that is our demand!" he wrote. PREMEDITATED MERGER Obama 'clones' Bush in killing sovereignty You thought plan was dead, but Democrat brings it back
  4. 4. Posted: September 13, 2009, By Jerome R. Corsi © 2009 WorldNetDaily NEW YORK – President Obama is continuing President George W. Bush's effort to advance North American integration with a public- relations makeover calculated to place the program under the radar of public opinion and to deflect concerns about border security and national sovereignty.

As WND reported in August, the White House offered few details to the press in advance of the most recent North American Leaders Summit held in Guadalajara, Mexico. fa=PAGE.view&pageId=109347
